Publisher's Summary

The Napoleon Hill Foundation received many requests from people wanting the original, unedited, 1937 copy of Think and Grow Rich. To satisfy those customers, the Foundation reproduced Napoleon Hill’s personal copy of the first edition, printed in March of 1937. The book has the notation, “not to be loaned”, and signed: Annie Lou Hill (the wife of Dr. Hill). This personal copy of Dr. Hill’s was given to me by Dr. Charles W. Johnson, Chairman of the Napoleon Hill Foundation and a nephew of Napoleon Hill. It was Napoleon Hill who sent Dr. Johnson to medical school, and today he is a practicing cardiologist. Charlie refers to Napoleon Hill as “Uncle Nap” and will often make the statement, "Uncle Nap would be proud of the Foundation today." The original 1937 manuscript was written and edited with the assistance of Napoleon’s wife. In later years, the existing document was again edited by Dr. Hill. For example, the Foundation owns a 1958 edition that Hill edited personally. This did not lessen the book’s value in Hill’s judgment. Hill made the editing remarks in his own handwriting and the resulting 1960 edited edition has sold over 100 million copies making it the most read self-help book of all time.
Think and Grow Rich sells more copies today than before Dr. Hill died in 1970. Now, a new and authoritative recording of this original, unedited, one-of-a-kind work, authorized by the Napoleon Hill Foundation is available. By purchasing this audio edition, you will be supporting the nonprofit Napoleon Hill Foundation. The entire philosophy of Napoleon Hill is based on the Golden Rule. The Foundation deeply appreciates the support of those of you who only purchase Napoleon Hill authorized books. You can identify these materials by the Foundation Logo and by looking inside for Napoleon Hill copyright.

This version, read by Fred Stella, is THE version to buy

The book Think and Grow Rich is a classic. If you were to ask any author who writes on success, motivation, or self improvement my guess is each one would recommend this book.

The book, originally published in 1937, is now available online for free because copyrights have lapsed and that has led to more recent print editions having slight changes to the original text.

This audio is true to the original text and I find Fred's voice, pace and style to be the most enjoyable to listen to. I highly recommend this version as well as Fred's reading of Napoleon Hill's Laws of Success also here on Audible.

The original and ultimate success bible...

When it comes to the foundations of success, this book simply has no equal. I can't believe it had been this long since I visited it and especially on audiobook. It's so packed with deep wisdom that there's a temptation to dismiss parts of the work as less important when in reality, it is simply a complete work of gold.

A must read/listen for anyone who wants to tap into the life we were all born to lead in seeking the best that's inside each of us...

An inspiration, if notably ageing

This audiobook, an unabridged reading of a book written in 1937, was and is, a real inspiration. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that it was written in the early 20th century; where the author offers explanations for some founded on scientific knowledge now known to be untrue. And the assumptions of gender roles and the intended audience invite a quiet chuckle from the discerning modern listener. Still, putting aside the fanciful speculations about how and why some phenomena of science might work, taken more as analogies than literal truth, it is a rare insight into the nature of human endeavours, which appears as valid today as it did back then. Inspiring, but ageing.

his voice was deep

I liked the sound of his voice, though he was a bit slow and I listened to it at 1.3x to fix it.
